Innovators Get Linux to Boot in 1 Second

EDN reports that MontaVista Software has developed an embedded version of Linux that boots in less than a second. "In addition to designing real-time Linux, MontaVista has been working on the development of real-fast Linux, a Linux operating system that boots in less than 1 second. The team who worked on the project includes Alexander Kaliadin, Nikita Youshchenko, and Cedric Hombourger. Many on the team also worked on the MontaVista real-time Linux. "One of the first things we did years ago was to make the Linux scheduler pre-emptive and deterministic," says Hombourger. These fast-boot developments are not necessarily limited to real-time or an embedded Linux; however, they can get a conventional Linux distribution to boot in 1 second, as well."
